Reports in Italy are still linking Arsenal with a move for Atlanta midfielder Franck Kessie, according to reports
Wenger is said to be interested in the Ivory Coast international following good reports from our scouting department. Our scouts reportedly watched the midfielder for the first time in September when he turned out for his team against Palermo.
The midfielder was one of his team’s best performers on that day, impressing for his team and reports now claim Wenger sees him as a good addition to our squad.
With the winter transfer window drawing closer, the rumors haven’t gone away. Reports in Italy claim we are still interested in the midfielder despite Atlanta’s unwillingness to sell.
Kessie is already drawing comparisons to Manchester City‘s Yaya Toure and is highly regarded as the next big thing in the Serie A, so there is every possibility that we are interested.
However, we are not the only ones interested in the midfielder. Italian giants Juventus and Inter Milan are also monitoring his development and it is believed some of the interested clubs could make an attempt to sign him in the new year.
I don’t think Arsenal will make a move as early as January due to the numerous options we have in his position. A summer move is more realistic considering the uncertainty surrounding Santi Cazorla’s long-term future
Cazorla will be 32 next month and is drawing towards the end of his playing career, Kessie will be a perfect successor to the Spaniard.
